From Publishers Weekly
Victor Baxter was adopted, possibly kidnapped, at age 12 into a strange family as a substitute for a child who died. As he grows older, he becomes involved in some of the suspicious enterprises of his foster father, "The Captain," an apparent gunrunner. PW called this novel "exquisitely understated, moving and graced by humorous touches."
